Some Aston Villa fans react to Jack Grealish's injury update

Some Aston Villa fans have been reacting on social media after Birmingham Live quoted Jack Grealish as revealing he is set to visit a specialist in London to assess his shin injury.

The England maestro has been out of action since developing the problem during training in February, resulting in Grealish missing his side’s last 11 Premier League games.

Grealish is hopeful that he will soon be able to aid his team’s efforts over the final stretch of the campaign, which could potentially boost his chances of being selected for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions squad for this summer’s European Championships.

“I haven’t actually got a date yet but I’m going to London on Thursday,” he said. “I’m hoping [to be back in] a week or 10 days.”

Grealish returning to action next week could see the five-capped England international be deemed available for Aston Villa’s final four fixtures of the season, but would miss at least the visit of Manchester United this Sunday.

A further few days in the treatment room risks Grealish also sitting out Everton’s trip to Villa Park next Thursday, before a three-day turnaround before the Villans travel to face Crystal Palace in a tightly packed run-in.

Here is how these Aston Villa fans responded to Grealish revealing he is set to visit a specialist this week:
